The Embassy Theatre concluded the 37th annual Festival of Trees on December 1, one of the region’s most anticipated holiday traditions and the organization’s largest fundraising event.
In 2020, the Embassy worked with Upper Valley Film Co. to design and produce a virtual tour to assist with fundraising and conveniently bring the event to residents near and far who were unable to attend in person. The virtual tour was such a positive accommodation to the community that the organization has decided to bring back the beloved virtual tour for 2021.

Built in 1928, the Embassy Theatre is Indiana’s largest self-sustaining historic theater. Originally known as the Emboyd, with the adjoining seven-story Indiana Hotel, the majestic movie palace and vaudeville theater introduced Indiana to the biggest stars of stage and screen. Today, the Embassy is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Combining the beauty of a bygone era with the energy and diversity of today’s performers, the Embassy is the showplace of Northern Indiana. Many choose to host events and weddings at the Embassy, as it offers flexibility and a unique event experience in an iconic piece of Fort Wayne history.
